Hi,

1.      How long have you been facing this issue?
2.      Did you make any changes on the computer prior to this issue?
3.      Does this happen only while viewing pictures folder?

Let’s follow these methods and check if the issue persists.

Method 1

You may reregister the corrupted ntdll.dll file and check if the issue persists.

a. Open an administrator command prompt. To do this, click Start, click All Programs, click Accessories, right-click Command Prompt, and then click Run as administrator.

b. Type Regsvr32 <space> ntdll.dll.

c. Click the OK button.

Method 2

You may also run System File Checker [SFC] scan on the computer which will replace the missing or corrupt files & check if the issue persists.

a. Open an administrator command prompt. To do this, click Start, click All Programs, click Accessories, right-click Command Prompt, and then click Run as administrator.

b. Type the following command, and then press ENTER:

sfc /scannow
